Thanks for the advice guys and I will be swapping rotors too da Vinci so am not too worried about maintaining compatible compounds. Those Carbotech 1521's were on my list so glad to hear you like their line and thanks for the insider discount. Anybody have actual experience with them?
Same with the PF Z-rated, which I was initially leaning towards but after reading a few threads about them being used on the track with good results I'm worried they sacrifice on basic street performance and would be similar to my previous Porterfield R4S's. It's tough having two nearly identical cars so I can feel the comparitive difference very easily between the 03 on OEM's and the 04 on R4S.
The other pad I'm considering would be EBC Redstuff, from a coworker in an S2000 who got me into tracking in the first place. Anybody here have good e46 experiences?
Thanks again for everybody's time/input!
